Disaster Preparedness Summit

How COVID-19 Has Prepared Us for the Next Disaster


HOW HAVE YOU RESPONDED TO COVID-19?

 

There is no doubt that we have all been affected by this global pandemic

and have had to make major adjustments to the way we live our lives. 

 

Businesses and organizations of all sizes have had to completely change

the way they conduct business – some employees were sent home, some have been overextended to help keep essential businesses up and running, and unfortunately, many businesses have been forced to shut their doors altogether. 

  • What have our experiences during this unprecedented time taught us
  • What lessons have we learned? 
  • How has your organizations business model been altered? 
  • And how can we take what we have learned and apply it to the next major disaster?  

At our 3rd Annual Disaster Preparedness Summit, you will hear from:

·        Red Cross leadership on how the pandemic has forced the organization to change how they deliver the mission 

·        Industry leaders from major national and global companies, who will share how they have adjusted operations 

·        Local leaders of higher education, government, and other industries and the lessons they have learned   

·        Special guests with proven experience in leading through both natural and manmade disasters  

Please review the two available Track Options. You'll be asked to make your selection before completing registration.

Track 1 - Adapting Business During a Crisis

During this track, industry leaders will address how they continued to operate their organizations and businesses in the midst of the pandemic, while keeping their employees safe, informed and aware of the changing landscape that COVID-19 created. There are two sessions, Changing Business Model and Workforce Adaptation. Attendees who choose this track will hear about the steps business leaders took to acclimate their business model and what they learned to apply to their operations for future disasters.

Track 2 - Tactical Crisis Management

COVID-19 has and continues to apply an enormous amount of pressure to our health services like we have never seen before. Many everyday citizens have been left to worry about their own health and how to personally deal with a crisis like this. During this session, you will hear from hospital representatives and local leaders from Offices of Emergency Management on lessons learned from operating during a long-term crisis, and how they will implement what they have learned for future disasters. Attendees will also hear from first responders on their takeaways from the pandemic. There are two sessions, Operations and First Responder Advice for Citizens.

$20K Grant. America's Promise. Deadline: March 31. 2021


 

americaspromise.org

 

 

 

The YES Project is pleased to announce the request for proposals for the 2021 Action Roundtable cycle!

 

The YES Project (Young, Employed, Successful) believes in a world in which every young person who wants a job can find a job. We also believe in a world in which those young people have what they need to succeed once they find it.

Do young people feel supported in the workplace—particularly young people of color? Do they feel like they belong? Can they show up as their full selves? Given that job satisfaction is so closely linked to productivity and retention, do young employees of color have what they need to feel satisfied at work? 


Recent research from the YES Project found that young people view their “work selves” and their “life selves” as inextricably intertwined. This means that success in the workplace requires an acknowledgement and appreciation of their full identities. From their racial background to their personal circumstances, it is important for young people—particularly young people of color—to be able to bring all of who they are to work. This is especially important in today’s context, in which many employers are working to create inclusive workplaces that promote belonging,  satisfaction, and, ultimately, productivity and retention among employees of color.

If you are a 501c3 youth-supporting organization or an intermediary organization providing workforce development training, career services, and/or connecting young people to employment opportunities, we encourage you to apply to host a Virtual Action Roundtable with employer and youth partners.

Through this process, the YES Project will issue six grants of $20,000 each to grantees who will co-host Virtual Action Roundtable conversations focused on bringing employers and young people of color together to create more inclusive workplace environments. Beyond hosting the conversations, grantees will connect their employer partners with young people and facilitate their collaboration on co-designed strategies for improving belonging and satisfaction in the workplace.

The purpose of the Action Roundtable process is to:

 

  1. Catalyze observable and sustainable change to policy, practices, or culture within workplaces 
  2. Increase youth capacity and skills (e.g., leadership, career skills, civic engagement)
  3. Increase employer capacity to center voices of young people of color in racial equity efforts 
  4. Increase capacity for cross-sector collaboration between CBOs, employers, and youth

 

Applications are due March 31, 2021. Grantees will be announced April 2021.
